Artificial long weekend

20 08 2008

I have already told you of my longing for the long weekend. So this weekend, I again extended the traditional two days to three in order to play a little bit of golf with some friends.

I must say, taking Monday off certainly gives you a whole new level of appreciation for Sunday. There is no rush to get the shopping done, less stress about finishing household chores before the week begins and a more relaxed Saturday-type vibe about the whole day.

Sunday morning, Bruce was back at the pulpit after some time away and he preached a cracker on Hebrews, especially the first four verses. He talked about the situation of the Ugandan church (where they have just been) and the situation with the worldwide Anglican Communion. He discussed the danger of drifting away from the authority of Christ both personally and congregationally.

Monday was golf at the crack of dawn. Dave Keun and Aidan Carleton joined me for 18 holes at Castle Hill GC. It was a pleasure to catch up with these guys, even though I chopped it up (I came third!). Highlight was Dave’s tap in birdie on the 4th.

Monday afternoon was spent relaxing and watching the Olympics, doing the shopping and just the smallest amount of study for good measure.

I really should take a day off more often! Or maybe we should push for the standard 3-day weekend?
